Mandalorian & Alita Director Art Imagines An Amazing Crossover


Stunning new¬†fan art features an epic crossover between¬†The Mandalorian¬†and¬†Alita: Battle Angel. The Mandalorian¬†is one of Disney’s latest¬†Star Wars¬†projects that’s taken the world by storm.¬†Alita: Battle Angel,¬†on the other hand, is a cyberpunk, fast-paced film that centers around the titular character of Alita.

While The Mandalorian¬†introduces viewers to a host of intriguing characters, the show’s breakout star is undeniably the Child, aka Baby Yoda. The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) is initially tasked¬†with capturing Baby Yoda. However, the Mandalorian decides to protect the Child instead, and quickly becomes his¬†adoptive father; as such, the relationship between the Mandalorian and¬†the Child is at the heart of the Disney+ series.

Director Robert Rodriguez¬†has shared some adorable crossover art via Twitter. The image shows Baby Yoda standing beside a young Alita as the two look out into the distance. The picture also has “October 30″¬†written in white next to Alita and the Child. Further writing on the side reveals that October 30th will be a big day for both¬†Alita: Battle Angel¬†and¬†The Mandalorian.¬†More specifically, the text explains that¬†Alita: Battle Angel¬†will be re-released in theaters while¬†season 2, episode 1 of The Mandalorian¬†is set to premiere on Disney+. Rodriguez is also directing at least one episode of The Mandalorian season 2. You can check out this sweet (and informative!) piece of fan art below:

While¬†Alita: Battle Angel¬†was initially expected to bomb at box offices, it managed to gross $404 million worldwide while receiving generally positive reviews from fans. All in all, it’s clear that the film has a lot of untapped potential, which is likely one reason why¬†Alita: Battle Angel¬†is¬†getting a theatrical re-release. Unfortunately, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic may keep some moviegoers from seeing¬†Alita: Battle Angel¬†in person. Still, it’s¬†great to hear that the underrated film is getting a second chance.

Alita: Battle Angel¬†will certainly face stiff viewing competition, especially in the first few days of¬†The Mandalorian’s¬†release on Disney+. Expectations are high for season 2 of the¬†Star Wars¬†series,¬†and fans are excited to see characters such as¬†Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) and Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) join¬†The Mandalorian.¬†However, that’s not to say that fans can’t catch the new episode of¬†The Mandalorian¬†before going to see¬†Alita: Battle Angel.¬†Either way, it’s clear October 30th will be a big day for everyone involved, whether fans want to revisit a post-apocalyptic Earth or journey to a galaxy far, far away.
